Currently we strictly use the Axis Camera Station for all of our camera recordings. The drawback to this is we are limited to only Axis cameras if we need the video to be recorded.

We are going to be adding more IP cameras to our system and I wanted to explore alternatives to the Axis software. Since we use cameras from SCK for other projects, I noticed you have NVR options…specifically the 64 channel.

I’ve got a few questions.

1) How simple is the client software. Can it be setup where one user can only have live view with certain cameras). Can it be setup where a user can have live view with certain cameras and have the ability to review recordings for those cameras.

2) We have several different models of Axis cameras (all ONVIF). Some match to the list you have supplied on your site. Some we have are not on the list but are the same series…will this work? For instance, we have an M1054 and your list has M1014.

3) We have several M3007 (360 degree) and you have a M3005-V. Will ours work? Also, how does the software hand these 360 degree views? Currently, it is a “fish-eye” view when we view in in Axis Camera Station but once you click/zoom into an area it adjusts the view so that it looks viewable.

4) Our 6034-E camera can be controlled from a Axis joystick. Will the joystick still work. Potentially, this same joystick may control other PTZ cameras on the network.

5) We have one camera that is not an IP camera that connects to a M7104 (video encoder) so that it can be recorded. Your list has M7001 which is discontinues. Will ours work?

I did read a post from the other day about an Axis camera and NVR so it looks promising.

The software is very easy to navigate. It does only work with the nvr it is not known to directly work with other manufactures cameras. As long as the NVR pulls the video from the cameras you will be good.

The cameras should work, please keep in mind you will want to have the cameras updated before you begin adding them to the new NVR.  The NVR supports axis protocol and ONVIF, but back to firmware any changes or issues that may have been found would be fixed with a firmware.

As you want to mix equipment I am not sure that all the features of your IP cameras will carry over. You may have to login directly to camera to make the needed changes. The camera with the joystick is hard to say what will or will not work. The spec sheet on the camera does not detail the version of ONVIF it uses.  Typically we can move a PTZ camera with the NVR and not use a joystick. Depending on how the joystick talks to the camera would depend if you can still use it or not after connecting it to the nvr. 

The fish-eye cameras in theory would work with the nvr. Our NVR breaks up our elite fish-eye camera into 12 views if you want but it only records the main fish-eye view. If the nvr can handle your fish-eye the same way then the software would display it as such. 

On the DVR you have with the one analog camera you maybe able to port that feed over to nvr from dvr. Just like the dvr is a IP camera. I could not find anything to support that idea though, so I do not know if it would work.

Dan, thank you for the reply.

I wrote a camera viewing application that allows the user to use the Axis joystick with the Axis camera… using Axis’ ActiveX control.  It also works with Axis Camera Station software.  The joystick also has a couple of “hot keys” that allows the user to press and the camera points to specific location.  Does your software allow this or at least a “home position”?

Fish-eye cameras – Motion is only set on the main overview and the software breaks it down in several views.  I think the how the NVR handles it is fine.

Software…I’m guessing exporting certain time ranges to a file is doable?

If we have at most 5 simultaneous users using a client, will the Elite Series NVR be the best choice for me?

Dan,

I’ve got some other questions as well.  Let me generate a list and maybe I can email it right to you and then at some point we can have a phone conversation at a later time.  Will that work out?  Feel free to drop me a message in my inbox.
